Gaza’s Al-Shifa Hospital Turned into ’Death Zone’: WHO

Alwaght- The Israeli drones and fighter jets have bombed Shifa Hospital in central Gaza, killing and injuring dozens of civilians.

Al-Shifa Medical Complex in Gaza City was targeted by Israeli occupation forces early Monday. Under the guise of an operation to root out Palestinian Resistance fighters allegedly using the complex, the Israeli military unleashed a barrage of aerial and artillery fire, resulting in multiple deaths and injuries.

Reports from Gaza indicate that Israeli drones and warplanes fired upon Palestinians in the area surrounding the hospital, while naval vessels targeted the complex from the west. The relentless aggression has left several individuals dead and many more wounded, with bodies of martyrs unreachable due to the ongoing assault.

Fire broke out in a specialized surgery building within the complex as a direct result of Israeli airstrikes, Al-Manar reported. 

The Ministry of Health in Gaza has held the Israeli occupation responsible for the safety of medical staff, patients, and displaced individuals trapped within the al-Shifa Medical Complex. This brazen attack is seen as a blatant violation of international law and the Fourth Geneva Convention, aimed at destroying the already strained healthcare system in the region.

Following the air raids, Israeli forces stormed the hospital with tanks and gunfire, resulting in deaths and injuries, according to Aljazeera. 

The Israeli regime argued that it was searching for Hamas fighters inside the hospital as it claimed the resistance "regrouped" there, a narrative Hamas has categorically rejected since the beginning and argued Tel Aviv was justifying its crimes.
